Retrieving clipboard data
Posted on 2007-11-15
I am writing a c# asp.net application.
I have a div and 2 buttons - an html "Paste" button and an ASP "Submit" button.
When pressing the "Paste" button I am putting the text from the clipboard to the div using:
var text = clipboardData.getData("Text");
document.all("divData").innerHTML = text;
The problem is that when pressing the server side "Submit' button, I want to use the div's data. Instead of returning the data I just pasted from the clipboard, I get the data that was in the div previously.
I guess it is because the "Paste" function occurred on the client and the server doesn't know the data has changed.
How can I "Paste" data from the clipboard and use it in my "Submit" function?
